On August 12 at 6pm KST, the Korean-Canadian musician dropped the full-length record alongside an accompanying music video for ‘Not About You’, which features Junny and a love interest going through the highs and lows of a romantic relationship.
“I ain’t talking about you / Are you still wishing that I’ll be / Writing about all of our memories? / This is the one and only time / I’ll be talking about you,” he croons in the chorus.
Consisting of nine brand-new songs, Junny wrote and composed the ‘blanc’ album himself, while the songs ‘Not About You’, ‘Obvious’, ‘Mugshot’, ‘boyhood’ and ‘OH!!.’ credit him on arrangements. minGtion, a frequent Junny collaborator and a producer for NCT, Taeyeon and Red Velvet, also worked on a number of tracks on the record.
‘blanc’ marks Junny’s first-ever full-length album since he debuted as a singer in 2017; prior to this, he had only ever released singles and mini-albums, with the most recent record being the two-part ‘Vivid’ series of mini-albums in 2019.
The new record was also preceded by two pre-release singles: ‘Get Ya!’ and ‘Color Me’. The former song featured South Korean hip-hop artist pH-1, while the latter included guest vocals from K-pop soloist Chung Ha.
